The list cannot be displayed in DataSheet view – SharePoint 2010
One of my team mate working on the server where windows server 2008 R2 was installed, he tried switching the view from standard to datasheet and he got the following error: list cannot be displayed
If you are facing the above mentioned error message then I would request you to check the installed office version first.
If you have any confusion as how to check the version then please refer the following link: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/24259/beginner-discover-if-youre-running-the-32-or-64-bit-version-of-office-2010/
Why we are checking the office version? Is it necessary?
Yes, it’s very necessary to know the office version we are using whether it is 32 bit or 64 bit.
Microsoft strongly recommends the use of 32-bit (x86) versions of Office 2010, Project 2010, and Visio 2010 applications as the default option for all platforms.
Make sure you use 32 bit version of office.
FAQ: can we install 32 bit office on 64 bit OS? – Yes, absolutely no probs.
Once you install the 32 bit office in such problematic scenarios then I am pretty sure that your issue will be resolved. Thank you.
In case of any issues/queries then please feel free to contact, I would be more than happy to help you as well as resolves your issues.
